TUES / THURS 9:30am SmartFlow Level 2/3 with Heidi
Studio will be closed for low season beginning June 16th!
SmartFlow Alignment-based vinyasa yoga that is deeply rooted in mindfulness and self-inquiry. This style of yoga was originally developed by Annie Carpenter. This class is perfect for those who want to build strength and flexibility with options given to tailor each class to the individual. We will explore movement and alignment principles as well as the deeper philosophical themes of yoga.
Level 1/2 is aimed at those who are newer to yoga as well as those who like to move at a slower pace. Particularly good for those working with an injury or looking to decompress after a surf session. We will explore a wide range of mobility, strength and flexibility.
Level 2/3 is aimed at those who have some experience with yoga and are more comfortable moving at a steady pace with some longer holds. I consider an advanced student someone who can tailor a yoga sequence to what their body/mind need on any given day; exploring your edge in a safe and fun way.
Restorative Yoga Classes are focused on relaxing and restoring the body and central nervous system. Postures are often supported with the use of props and held for longer periods of time. Restorative yoga classes are all about letting go and allowing your body to open with the use of props, gravity and intentional breathing.

Hola! Mucho Gusto!
Heidi Blackman (Studio Owner & Instructor) I started practicing yoga in 2003 while attending university at UC San Diego. I dabbled in many different types of yoga but eventually found my silver slipper with SmartFlow yoga and Annie Carpenter. I am a 500-ERYT yoga instructor and a certified SmartFlow yoga instructor. I completed my initial 200 hr training with YogaWorks and Kia Miller in 2012 and my 300+ hr advanced training with Annie Carpenter in 2014. I am also an avid equestrian and co-founder of Equisol Retreats, a horseback riding and yoga retreat business in Nosara, Costa Rica.
I partnered with Callie Rae King and Horse Class in 2020 to offer a 30-day online Yoga for Riders course that has received amazing feedback. The course is geared for beginner and intermediate yogis who are looking to improve their balance, flexibility, strength, self-awareness and confidence on the yoga mat and in the saddle!

I love spiritual studies and mindfulness practice. I have a Master's degree in International Environmental Policy. Hablo español.
This has been the absolute best [Yoga for Riders] program for me, thank you so much!! It is the perfect blend of variety of poses, the breath, the meditation addressing the mind and soul, the length (30 minutes is the sweet spot). It was nicely edited. I loved the variety of locations where you filmed. Heidi is an amazing teacher with excellent reminders for modification and adjustments. The verbal instruction was so good most often I didn't have to view the screen to see what was happening. Heidi's voice is very warm and supportive. My body is feeling more limber and strong. I look forward to yoga practice and always feel better afterwards. I've tried other yoga videos and online courses, but nothing comes close to this perfect blend. Thank you so much for putting this together!
